All: I checked with JStor about access a few years ago and found it to be much too expensive. I seem to recall in excess of $50-$100k annually...something that only large libraries can afford. I was fortunate to subsequently gain access through our association with our university, and that access is invaluable. JStor did indicate when I spoke with them years ago, that they might start considering options for smaller groups, so it might be worth a try to see where their price point is now, but I'm betting it's still out of reach for this group.
